, reporting from moscow, let's go to the white house right now, our senior white house correspondent jim acosta is standing by. jim, there were important meetings in the west wing of the white house, we saw the top national security advise scores leafing the west wing of the white house. i assume they'll be issuing a statement or someone will be going before the cameras, what are you hearing? >> reporter: and this is eerily similar to when the president was weighing whether to use military force against syria, there were some tense moments over here at the white house on some weekends as you will'll recall, wolf, and these principal meetings do occur from time to time. it does appear that one occurred this afternoon but the white house has to officially congrfi that mississippi t-- that that s the case. the chairman of the joint chiefs, martin dempsey. so it does a appear that senior officials have been meeting with the president here about this situation in ukraine. and you know, wolf, you've been talking about options a that the white house has available to it, options that the preside
can deliver, beginning with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim? >> clearly the administration is getting ready to act. no decision made yet on whether to impose those sanctions or, indeed, which sanctions to impose but they want to have the options ready. and today we heard the president warn that his goal is to isolate russia and make its actions in ukraine very costly. with russian troops now swarming, sovereigning ukrainian territory, preparing likely sanctions against russia. president obama vowing today to make russia's military intervention a costly proposition. >> what we're indicating to the russians is that if, in fact, they continue on the projectory that they are on, we are going to have a negative impact on russia's economy and its status in the world. >> reporter: the possible sanctions include freezing the overseas assets of russian individuals and companies, banning travel for russian leaders and businessmen and at the more extreme end, blocking some russian banks from the international financial system, an enormously costly situation for russ
with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto here tw latest. jim? >> i think you could say today we saul the full yin and yang of the u.s. policy response to the crisis in crimea. on the other side, secretary of defense chuck hagel demonstrating the u.s. commitment to its nato allies with the deployment of some aircraft and the cancellation-of nato contacts with russia. on the diplomatic side, we saw the opening of a diplomatic path to solving the crisis, the so-called off ramp u.s. officials have mentioned before, still undefined, kerry said, but a start. >> reporter: u.s. and russian diplomats face to face for the first time since the start of the crisis in crimea. secretary of state john kerry said they are now negotiating a diplomatic path to ending it. >> we are committed to working with russia. together with our friends and allies in an effort to provide a way for this entire situation to find the road to deescalation. >> reporter: russian and ukrainian officials, however, did not meet. >> why didn't you meet lavrov today? >> reporter: but as the diplomats talk or don
. but remember those were man years. men age gracefully like robert redford or a nice leather wallet. >> jim, jim, why did you put up two leather wallets, i don't-- okay, now plus, plus it just goes to the question of trust worthiness. during the benghazi hearings, she kept changing her story. first she said she was 65. next year she's 66. where does it stop? so obviously the developing story and what's that-- okay, i'm being told that mrs. clinton is now even older than when i began this report two minutes ago. i know it's rude to talk about a woman's age. but that's not what i am doing. i am talking about people talking about other people talking about other people talking about a woman's age. (laughter) that's called journalism. when it comes to picking the leader of the free world you've got to ask the important questions like rush does. >> we put a picture of mrs. clinton up at rushlimbaugh.com. and we simply ask does america, do the american people want to observe the aging of this woman in office. yike its! >> stephen: that's how she looks today, imagine how she would look at 73. ooh.

at this hour. elise labott joins us and michael holmes and our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, joins us from washington. >>> first, elise, i want to speak with you. i understand john kerry has already had a brief meeting with the russian foreign minister, sergei lavrov. they have had a somewhat decent relationship in the past. they are set to have a one-on-one meeting any minute now. what's the realistic goal of this meeting? >> reporter: the goal, john, is really to get russian prime minister, lavrov, to sit down with the ukrainian foreign minister. that minister flew on secretary kerry's plane last night with us from kiev to paris. he says he is really eager to sit down with the russian foreign minister. that's what all this diplomacy is about today, trying to give russia that diplomatic off ramp. they want russia and ukraine to sit down, have a dialogue along with the u.s., u.k., france, germany, members of the international community with an interest. they want to get monitors on the ground in ukraine acknowledging that russia does have these concerns in ukraine, p
problems before. back in 2010, there was a race for an open seat in kentucky left vacant by jim bunning's retirement. republican primary that year saw a guy you might recognize, rand paul. but he wasn't big rand paul at the time and he was the underdog going up against kentucky secretary of state trey grayson. grayson was mcconnell's main man. he was said to have hand picked grayson and, of course, publicly endorsed him. then when the election came around, rand paul crushed mcconnell's man, grayson, at the polls. in other words, mitch mcconnell, one of the most powerful republicans in washington, no one argues that, but he couldn't carry trey grayson to victory in a primary in his home state at which point mcconnell may have realized something. he had a self-preservation problem. he went out and hired rabid paul's adviser, named jesse benton to run his campaign. he could at least go out and hire the general. you have mitch mcconnell working with rand paul's guy and suddenly something makes sense here. rand paul, not even up for re-election right now has been going around, you may have s
an act of aggression against ukraine. what's happening now and what does it all mean? nbc's jim maceda is in moscow. bill neely is in crimea. jim, we start with you in the russian capital there. what does that approval of putin's request to use russian troops mean? >> reporter: hi, craig. you're right. it is pretty symbolic. the legislative body that putin requested that use of force from is a rubber stamp, upper house of parliament. and it doesn't mean that putin will now send in more troops into crimea. there are thousands there already all part of russia's black sea fleet. large numbers have been seen there over the past 48 hours, securing airports, government buildings, telecom towers. what the approval does mean is it's official now. russians have been mobilized in crimea. they can now all put their patches back on. and the approval of course gives putin more options. it allows him to strike not only crimea but anywhere in ukraine. and of course that spikes the tension even higher. >> jim, any word at this point on a timetable? >> reporter: not that we're aware of, no. but i can t
are heading home at the end of this year. as jim miklaszewski reports, they are preparing for a possible pullout. >> reporter: martin dempsey was about to land in afghanistan when he got the word. start preparing to pul all u.s. troops out of afghanistan at the end of the year. >> we have o to plan for other options. >> reporter: in a phone call president obama urged the afghan president to sign a bilateral security agreement that would protect any american troops who remain in afghanistan once the war is officially over the at the start of next year. karzai once more refused. the white house press secretary said the president immediately ordered plans for a total u.s. withdrawal. >> this is about essentially planning for a post 2014 mission and there are a lot of complexities involved in asking the defense department to plan for a zero option that is a full withdral. >> reporter: karzai may leave him no choice. >> i can't ask men and women to serve in a country without the protections afforded by bilateral security agreement. >> reporter: karzai used the security agreement to try to pry
this rain and mountain snow so much. >> accu weather meteorologist jim dickey is tracking the pacific storm and another one hitting the northeast. good morning, jim. >> good morning, john and marci. we are tracking snow across the east into new england. through the early morning hours. it is weak but it will travel along the i-95 corridor. boston, south and west, new york city into d.c. just picking up a coating to an inch or show but leaving roadways slick. meanwhile, dealing with brutal cold along the upper midwest. northern plains minus 13, early morning low minneapolis. minus 3 in chicago. many spots above 0 during the day. soaking rain in california. we do need this but too much of a good thing will lead it flooding into the weekend. john and marci, back to you. >> jim dickey, thank you. >>> a spectacular scene from the surface of the sun. a giant solar flare erupted there yesterday. winds over 4 million miles per hour. flares often disrupt communications here on earth. this one was not directed at us. it could still cause auroras near the poles tonight. >> as the health care sign-up d
just 12 were allowed through to their posts. nbc news foreign correspondent, jim maceda is live for us now in moscow. let's look ahead to secretary kerry's meeting in paris. any hope of progress or is this just more posturing from both sides? >> reporter: hi, thomas. well, i think you can feel a sea of change in the past 24 hours. you cited some of putin's comments yesterday. some of them troubling, no doubt. he also said he saw no need for use of force in ukraine and had no desire to annex the crimea peninsula, really allowing that cold war style military confrontation that we've been reporting on to take a step back from the brink. we've seen that in the reaction of the world stock markets already. and even though rhymea remaicri very tense on the ground, those pictures prove that, even a report of russians seizing two more crimean anti-missile posts, the perception is that ukraine is spinning not toward war but some kind of diplomatic solution. secretary of state meeting with count counterpart sergey lavrov. this is the first time since the current crisis escalated that they've had

. >> that's the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff in an interview with nbc's jim miklashevski today while en route to afghanistan. that was them on the plane. general dempsey saying there he does not personally want u.s. troops to totally withdraw from afghanistan, but if there isn't a signed agreement between our government and the afghan government about u.s. troops staying on, then all u.s. forces will leave. this year. the chairman saying today that after 13 years of that war, u.s. troops accomplished their mission in afghanistan and it would not be a defeat to leave. something really specific seems to have led to today's big news about the war and the end of the war. this is defense secretary chuck hagel. this is him last october in brussels at nato headquarters. he was there meeting with all the other people who have his same job and all the other nato countries. it was the meeting of the nato defense ministers. at that meeting late last year, defense secretary chuck hagel told all the other defense secretaries in nato that by the next time they all got together, the u.s. and
. craig? >> all right. nbc's ian williams for us there in ukraine, thank you. want to bring in nbc's jim mecada now. we heard from secretary of state kerry and samantha power and then the white house announcement on friday afternoon that warning that there would be costs. how's russia reacting to the criticism coming from this country? >> reporter: well, if russia is putin, they're reacting like the teflon man. first of all, the reason for that is that putin wouldn't call what he's doing an act of war or aggression with all due respect to secretary of state kerry, but more of an act of self defense from his point of view, from putin's point of view, the new western or pro-western government in kiev is posing an existential threat to crimea and it's an essential war mortar port and base for the black sea fleet and he doesn't seem a bit affect bd i the criticism from abroad. putin doesn't seem to -- he doesn't seem to believe that the u.s. or its allies have the leverage to hurt him, especially when he sees the kind of reaction coming from russians out in the streets here in moscow and st.
to this ukraine crisis. our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, monitoring what's going on. and, you know, these diplomats, u.n. envoy basically held there. it getting ugly. but maybe lavrov and kerry, they do have a personal relationship that goes way back. maybe they can come up with something. >> they do. relationship that helped with that chemical weapons deal in certi syria. you look at the incident with the u.n. envoy and other skirmishes. you remember yesterday we saw ukrainian and russian soldiers go nose to nose and shots fired in the air. this is why you need diplomacy now. you need the sides talking to each other, to deescalate. because you have a very volatile mix of guys with guns on the ground there, and emotions that have been stoked up by russian propaganda. and remember, these gangs, these ununiformed gangs, kind of pro-russian militias, there is a russian hand in that. that's a tool of russian power on the ground there. this is not happening by accident. those guys coming together. and you know, we've talked about this before. once you get that genie out of the
could make russia a pariah, would vladimir putin bat an eyelash? joining me from moscow, nbc's jim maceda. jim, how is putin reacting to this criticism? >> reporter: hi there. well, karen, first of all, putin wouldn't call what he's doing an act of war or aggression, with all due respect to secretary of state kerry. as putin told german chancellor angela merkel in a phone call this evening, he believes mos w moscow's actions are appropriate, and they're more about self-defense. from his point of view, the new pro-western government in kiev poses a threat to his interest in ukraine. that's primarily crimea, where today there were even more troops roaming around going from ukraine army or military post to post, as you mentioned in your lead, trying to disarm the ukrainians. when they wouldn't agree to that, surrounding them and neutralizing their bases. but crimea gives putin the essentials he wants and needs. a base for his black sea fleet. he just doesn't seem affected by all the criticism coming from abroad. putin doesn't seem to believe that the u.s. or its allies have the kind
is the star of the show, your host, jim lang. >> thank you. bill: that is an american icon right there. jim lang, the long-time host of "the dating game" has left us, dying yesterday at his home in mill valley, california of a heart attack. best known for hosting "the dating game" for more than a decade. look at those guys. here we go, ladies. since 1965 he helped people pick a potential suitor in secret. celebrities like mack call jackson, steve martin, farrah fawcett all appeared on the show. he later returned to radio. his first love as morning disk jockey before retiring 80 years ago. jim lang lange was 81 years young. martha: you had that then. and hot tubs and fantasy suites. that was a much simpler time. that was first reality shows. send them on a date. tell them how the it was. bachelor number two, bill hemmer. bill: step right up. martha: obamacare has been front and center and will continue to be as we get closer to midterm elections as balance of power is back up for grabs in very real way. both sides are using the affordable care act in ad campaigns as you might imagine to atta
, but in the second part of his story on how obamacare could devastate home health care, jim ingle reports democrats are vulnerable because the administration's moves will disproportionately hurt women. >> the administration's cuts to home health care providers, mostly women, was mystifying to politicians of both parties, as well as care givers like dr. david fischer, who makes house calls to treat seniors in their homes, fulfilling one of the promises of obamacare. >> the home health services people are receiving is actually bending the cost curve down. and i think if we focus more on that aspect of our health care system, we'll bend that cost curve even further. >> then why cut funds for home health care workers? his eyes and ears with home bound seeners letting him known when someone falls or gets sick, like yeah vaughn, who had pneumonia, but treated at home, avoiding expensive trips to the er or hospital. >> for the cost of one er visit, you can pay for a year's worth of home physicians. >> that may be why more than half of the senate signed a letter objecting to the cuts after government analy

national correspondent jim ingle reports it has a lot to do with this fall's elections. >> president obama's steadily delaying and dismantling his own health care law as he prepares to offer another delay in obamacare, one to postpone the political pain of cancelling millions of plans in the individual market just like last fall. >> they're going to get cancellation notices again sometime around october 1 or slightly before, and the same political issue that erupted last year would erupt again in 2014 right before the election. >> it's just getting past the 2014 elections, and it's unfortunate, but i think it means that some of his candidates in the senate are in trouble. >> at the end of last year, some 6 million people on the individual market were told their policies were canceled and forced into obamacare often with more expensive policies. having promised that people could keep their plans and doctors no matter what, the president tried to apologize. >> there's no doubt that the way i put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. >> then he urged insurers and state insur
the deadline back two more years. well past the 2016 presidential election. tonight, jim engle tells us how the idea of controlling costs is also on life support. >> the obama administration while saying it's trying to lower health costs sometimes favors the most expensive way to provide care. take cancer treatment, for instance, where it pays hospitals far more for identical treatments than it does a multitude of community cancer centers. >> they do get paid more for doing the exact same thing, so the exact same treatments here versus the hospital are about 40% more expensive in the hospital than they are here. that affects everybody, patients' copays, the insurance carriers as well. >> not only to the taxpayers and medicare pay more when the carrikers in a hospital outpatient setting, but the patient pays more, too, and all the data suggests they pay 10% to 20% more. >> and he said the hospital gets paid twice as much for chemotherapy. for patients, it's price for convenience. >> i can come here and get my chemo within five minutes. i go to the hospital, it could be five minutes, it could
national security reporter jim sciutto is in washington. could this threat of seizing assets, could that deter the u.s. or eu from less viaing sanctions? >> reporter: it shows how quickly this could spiral into a tit for tat or unupmanship. right now they just target individuals, government officials involved in the decision to send troops into sovereign ukrainian territory. if the russians were to follow through on next step much seizing assets, you know, you have another option for the u.s. which has been discussed and brought up by republican senators, bob corker and others of sanctioning russian entities, meaning state banks, oil companies, energy companies, and that's when you start talking about real money. russia's trade, russia's very economy is dependent on access to the international finance system, its trade with europe. again europe lose as lot and that's why you're seeing opposition from the germans and british and others to more significant sanctions that have already been put on the table by the u.s. >> jim, educate our viewers. how common is it for a country that has

congressman jim colby. he came out in 1996 to become the second openly gay republican to serve in congress. of course, he represented part of the state of arizona. congressman, good morning to you, sir. >> good morning, chuck. >> i just want to get your initial reaction to governor brewer's decision. >> well, it was the right decision. i'm certainly pleased that she did it. i felt all along that when she weighed all the issues that she would do exactly what she did. she's right. it's not necessary. it doesn't -- it harms the reputation of the state of arizona, and it would be economically very damaging to the state. it's not the right thing to do. >> explain to some viewers here about the arizona -- the state of the arizona republican party these days. i'm reminded, folks, a few months ago, i believe the state party actually voted to censure john mccain. there seems to be a real divide sort of where national republicans and even republicans that represent arizona here in washington view things on social issues and what happens inside the state. explain that divide. >> well, there is some,
, jim messina, then campaign manager and plouf, denied him the right to cree yit a first-class political team. apart from the money and publicity, one of the things that will be a challenge for biden if he decides to run -- and my sense is that personally he does -- is the fact that hillary is vacuuming up all the talent. he tried to hire a close aide to michael bloomberg. that was rejected out of hand by the west wing. then he tried to bring in steve richetti, a guy known for his savvy. that was vetoed. finally biden had to go directly to obama and said, look, man, if you want me to do this job in twel, you have to let me have your own people. and even then the president said, look, you can have them as long as he and you stay in your lanes. >> to me that is sad that he has been denied even a fighting chance here. i also am sad, i don't think sad needs necessarily to be the organizing principle here, but, you know, i think political reporters are inherently nostalgic for times gone by. >> right. >> but biden is very much a figure caught in a crossroads with sort of the old democratic po
being assured that the democratic super pac priorities usa would stay neutral, jim messina made it clear they were getting on the hillary clinton bandwagon. -- the lack of discipline or the fact that being vice president is, in a sense, a recipe for being rodney dangerfield. it's that the democratic party is unlikely perhaps to nominate or to rally around a white male presidential candidate, perhaps for quite sometime. so let's talk a little bit more about this clinton-biden issue. joining me is msnbc contributor and former white house press secretary for president obama, robert gibbs, and tracey sefle who serves as an advisor to ready for hillary. i'm not saying you're being put on the side of biden here, but what was your -- what do you make of where biden's standing is? i thought that anonymous quote said it all, right? here's a guy who's gotten as close to the brass ring as he's ever gotten before, and then suddenly, the representing apparently has disappeared. >> right. and i thought it was a remarkably well-written piece by glenn. glenn is not used to me saying something like that.
national security correspondent, jim sciutto, is here watching all of this. it's fast-moving right now. and a lot of us didn't think it was going to get this bad. but there is potential for a whole lot worse. >> no question. that's been the consistent warning from u.s. officials. don't -- to the russians. don't do any actions that can be misinterpreted. right? and now on the ground there, you are having actions that can easily be misinterpreted. are those forces that you're seeing there supported by the russians, directed by the russians? we don't know for sure. >> are they russians? >> or are they russians, exactly. we don't know for sure, but that's exactly the kind of thing that can be misinterpreted and can further inflame the situation on the ground. >> the outgoing -- now the former u.s. ambassador in moscow, mike mcfaul, he spoke out on cnn's "new day" today, 48 hours since he left moscow, back at stanford university. but i want you to listen to what he said, because it's ominous. >> it's a very dangerous situation, extremely tense. you have soldiers with guns, very well-armed i
by cutting programs and attacking poor families won't help. joining me now are congressman jim mcdermott, democrat of washington, and salon.com's joan walsh. thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> it's good to be here. >> congressman mcdermott, this gop report blames poverty on the safety net, and on family structure. give me your take on this. >> well, as usual, paul ryan's running in the wrong direction. the american people know that it's what you're paid when you work that makes you get out of poverty. and as long as we don't raise the minimum wage, we're not going to get people out of poverty. a little town in washington, seatac, voted by public vote to raise to it $15. all over the country, suddenly there is an explosion of people recognizing that people who are paid well are not in poverty. we haven't raised the minimum wage. you can work as hard as you want at a minimum wage job and you're still in poverty. so you have to do something about the minimum wage. that's why the president's going forward with this. and unless paul ryan figures out which way the country
the conservative campaign to launch jim crow-style bills against gay americans and i'm going to put up a calendar on screen from your article, basically you point out we saw bills pop up like this in january 16th in kansas, at the end of the month in idaho, january 30th, south dakota, february 5th, tennessee. what was going on here that so many of these bills that basically we're trying to carve out a bigger legal ability to discriminate against people because they are gay, why is this all happening together? >> it's interesting, these bills sort of all came at once, when i looked into it, i found a network of conservative groups working on these bills, pushing them, helping write the language, but what's interesting, a couple of weeks ago i was writing about the jim crow bills taking the office by storm, but we've seen these bills die in arizona, ohio, mississippi, just in georgia last night, i got an e-mail from a representative who said he was completely getting rid of the discriminatory language. i think the tide's really changing. >> walk us through that. all these things are partly driven b
car.com lou: arizona governor jim drew were contemplating whether to veto the anti-gay bill sent to dusk on monday. faced with the decision and to veto legistion that as denial of service to gays and lesbians or do nothing at all for the bill to become law. the govern is a republican d conservative but it is not clear how she will decide. her conscience and our constitution will guide her to the right course. deserved additional is embraced the constitution on every instance of every public policy issue but leaves the highest respect for individual freedom and the rights of all citizens to equal treatment under our laws. i address this issue in my book "upheaval" i hope conservatives and reblans alike and democrats can unite behind a consistent and unyielding commitment to our constitution one dash constitution that would dimish in anyway our protection to people rights for all. i am asking all republicans and independents to think about what matters most to us. in my opinion nearly every weissue is best left to the conscience of the individual and the community standard is always high a
lerner dropped the story and hoped no one would see it and a focal point and jim jordan pointed out so many of the roads, not all of them. but so many go through lois lerner and her manipulation of the irs data. >> and so 8 or 9 monthsing on, was that a cover up? >> look, you can claim your fifth amendment right, but you can't make a statement. she waived the right and going to come here. she will be come up to cant captain hill if we give her immunity. we are not interested. she may have to pay consequences. come up to congress and tell the truth. that's what we are asking her to do. >> legally she must come back and answer questions. >> yeah, yeah. >> this is what her attorney said. we understand that the committee voted she had waived her right. and we disagree she waived any rights and will not answer unless she is ordered by the united states district court or receives immunicipality. is that a possibility? >> i don't think we have a desire to offer immoupity. and if she am cans up she will be held in contempt of the the congress and it will play out in the court. there is an easi
it and check in with accuweather meteorologist jim dickey. good morning, jim. >> good morning, john and marci. it's been a harsh winter across the north and east. everyone wants to know, when will the warmth, when will spring finally arrive? this is the current pattern. unfortunately, this is something to have some staying power, at least through early march. the jet stream diving down through the north and east allowing the arctic air to stay in place, well below averages. we're looking march 13th through the 15th, that's when it looks to change. the jet stream allows warmth to move back in, the spring equinox and temperatures should climb and arctic temperatures should be held at bay. let's get a preview for the summer. our long-range team at accuweather, a few highlights. expecting a hot and dry end to the east, wet in mid section and drought to continue across the west. back to you. >> thank you. now that we've heard the weather, news in order. let's check important headlines. >> first up, the big story from key west where racers are in key largo. this weekend is the 14th annual ev evergl
in the ukraine may put more of a strain on the u.s. and russian relations. jim sciutto is joining us with that side of the story. so, in your mind, does the u.s. have any more plans other than just talking loudly at this point? >> well, that's a good question. in those words, there's a lot of meaning. officials delivering very stark warnings to the russians to be careful not to move in. you heard secretary of state john kerry saying yesterday it would be, in his words, a grave mistake in the russians move in. now you have defense secretary chuck hagel who is traveling saying that russia should not make any moves that could easily be misinterpreted. we know they are watching closely. i think we can assume that they are working very much behind the scenes to deliver that message as well. and that shows that they are concerned. what else can they do beyond those concerns, it's a fair question. we don't know. it's hard to say what else they can do. >> what is the biggest concern? >> the biggest concern is that russia moves in. we've seen this story before. you remember in 2008 when russi

burning up the phone lines lately. >> the diplomacy continuing full speed ahead. let's hope it works. jim acosta at the white house, thank you. >>> let's go to paris, our foreign affairs reporter elise lavin is there. intense meetings today. the secretary said he'd rather be where all of the action is right now as far as the diplomacy is concerned. did you get the sense that there's any ground for serious optimism right now? >> wolf, i would say cautious optimism. they didn't get that meeting between russian foreign minister lav love and the ukrainian foreign, they've been trying to get together all day kerry met with lavrov. then they sat down together. you had that call between angela merkel in which she's pitching this german/french plan that has some elements that the russians would like. tomorrow secretary kerry will go to rome and meet with foreign minister lavrov again. you have a seedling, if you will, of a diplomatic process. and everyone wants to de-escalate the situation. but i will say, wolf, the state department just sent out a fax sheet and it's called president putin's fict
and apply online. creditcards.com. lou: arizona governor jim drew were contemplating whether to veto the anti-gay bill sent to dusk on monday. faced with the decision and to veto legislation that as denial of service to gays and lesbians or do nothing at all for the bill to become law. the governor is a republican and conservative but it is not clear how she will decide. her conscience and our constitution will guide her to the right course. deserved additional is embraced the constitution on every instance of every public policy issue but leaves the highest respect for individual freedom and the rights of all citizens to equal treatment under our laws. i address this issue in my book "upheaval" i hope conservatives and republicans alike and democrats can unite behind a consistent and unyielding commitment to our constitution one dash constitution that would diminish in anyway our protection to people rights for all. i am asking all republicans and independents to think about what matters most to us. in my opinion nearly every wed issue is best left to the conscience of the individua
jim clibert of south carolina and long-time advocate of raising minimum wage and also joining us is casie hunt. congressman, i'm curious is this an issue for the democrats or a victory? if you win you win before november, before the house adjourns. if you don't win you talk about it. what is the goal? win or talk about it in the election? >> it is always to win. i would much rather see the people on main street of america, those hard working men and women get the raise they deserve. that's why we are doing this. we believe that to raise the minimum wage will lift a couple of million people out of poverty. it will affect 60% of the people affected are women. so many of the women are heads of households. that is what we want to do. we want to give america a raise and we will worry about the politics of it later. >> i got to talk about it now because i'm not sure this thing can win. you have 199 members. you need 218. you need at least -- how are you going to get the reasonable republicans mostly from the northeast to midwest to vote with you? how do you put the pressure on these gu
will mention ambassador jim warlick and ambassador dobbins who did a great job. so we have a great agreement in place. what is the future with that agreement? it will be difficult. afghanistan faces challenges and, all of us are aware of those challenges but i think the odds are very much in favor of success with the bsa in place. will it be in place? the afghan people have spoken. the afghan presidential candidates, a number of whom i spoke to in kabul when i was there are all in favor of signing the bsa i think it's a virtual certainty the bsa will be signed. the issue whether president karzai signs it or not in my view is irrelevant. we need to plan on effectively him not signing it and move forward. i truly hope that any of the costs ambassador dobbins said might occur if there is delay might be effected by the great planning capacity our agencies have. i don't think there is any need for any particular cost as long as we keep our eye on the long game as is the topic of this panel. in turning to this topic of the afghan security forces which i not going to be expert i visited afghanistan

[applause] >> thank you. so i'm going to be extremely brief so we get right to the topic. i want to start with a thank you. i want to thank our panelists, chris, kim, michael hammond who tried to put this together on the fly yesterday. i want to thank all of you for coming out. but we thought this is such a critical issue. if you're trying to follow something on the weekend a lot of people were stalking about a lot of things but nobody had kind after chance to catch their breath and have a dialogue. this is see norm news opportunity with three very seasoned analysts, who are looking at these issues and studying this part of the world for a long time and have a deep breath, and have reasoned principled discussion what happened, what does it mean, where are we going from here and what are our
, groups like the fellowship, family research council. describes senator jim inhofe, perhaps most anti gay politician, as sort of a mentor and hero. and he is has studied in the united states. these ideas are being sort of broadcast overseas and amplified and taken to a whole new level in uganda. >> inhofe, by the way, we checked with him. he says, you know, he's -- had nothing to do with this legislation. he rejects it. he says i certainly disagree with the controversial legislation that uganda may enact in the coming days. and as i've said before, it is my hope that the country will abandon this unjust and harsh legislation. similar statement coming from other evangelical groups saying it's one thing to be anti gay, if you will. but it's another thing to say that gay people should spend the rest of their lives in jail or even be executed for engaging in homosexual activity. so it seems to me, and correct me if i am wrong, that there may have been some inspiration. but what they're doing in uganda goes far beyond what some of these evangelical groups may have wanted. >> i think you're exa
